to limit our discussions to behaviors the stimuli


Senior Member
Here, "behaviors" juxtaposes with "the stimuli". Should there be "and" in between:
" behaviors and the stimuli..."?

Thanks in advance

If it makes no sense to label ourselves permanently depressed on the basis of an occasional depression, then it takes better evidence than is presently available to label all patients insane or schizophrenic on the basis of bizarre behaviors or cognitions. It seems more useful, as Mischel[7] has pointed out, to limit our discussions to behaviors the stimuli that provoke them, and their correlates.

    Yes, in a way. More precisely, there should be a comma. The and is already there; it is a list of 3 items:
    1) behaviours
    2) the stimuli that provoke those behaviours
    3) their correlates.
